Robert Frank’s legendary, suppressed film on The Rolling Stones.

COCKSUCKER BLUES, 1972, 93 min.

“Cocksucker Blues was suppressed for years and seen only in bowdlerized, bootleg form.”  The great American photographer Robert Frank followed the band on their concert tour for the album Exile on Main Street —  “their first cross-country trip since Altamont, with Truman Capote, Terry Southern, Andy Warhol, and Princess Lee Radziwill as hangers on. Chronicling the loneliness and weary hedonism of life on the road – Frank would later say, ‘This totally excludes the outside world.’ “  (MOMA)
